On Sunday 29 June from 11am to 5pm about 20 gardens will be open in all shapes and sizes. Some will be new to the event, some will have been altered and some have been affected by storm damage.

The cost is being held at £5 per adult with accompanied children free. The children will have a list of things to look for in some of the gardens, but will also have fun finding the scarecrows.

A minibus will be available to take visitors to the furthest gardens on Nunney Open Gardens Day 2014.

Light refreshments will be on sale at the village hall. A plant stall in the centre will have plants from village gardens for sale.

Funds raised on this day annually go to fund the Flower Show which is always on the first Saturday of September. Other horticultural interests in the village also benefit including the children’s garden at the village school and the public gardens in the old quarry.

Nunney Open Gardens Day 2013It is always worth seeing what other people do with their gardens and good ideas can be copied. It is also interesting each year to see how gardeners have coped with the weather that has been chucked at them over the winter.

After all, most gardeners are delighted to show off the gardens to which they have given such a lot of effort, thought and care.
